AP Yi bot in the right hands can be a devasting counter to a lot of champs.

Since they all usually have mediocre pushing (save for a few) and rely on harassment with killing during their ultimate, Yi can just sit at full HP with meditate and simultaneously out push them and harass with Alpha Strike.

They are forced to gank since you can literally never leave lane and farm forever.

AP Yi sounds like a fun build... any tips on stats to focus on/masteries/runes?

Strange, I actually fought an AP Yi bot and pretty much dominated him. I was Udyr though. Turtle deals with Alpha Strike pretty well and Bear stops Meditate.

Also, in general I've found that AP Yi has an OK early to mid game but seems to fall off in end game. Specifically if anyone can stun, his main defense of Meditate becomes useless. AD Yi on the other hand seems to be better at late game and keeping pressure on throughout the game. Then again, that's just what I've seen in my Elo, so who knows, I'm sure it's different elsewhere.

I think you mean "most mages without an interrupt"... which means... Morde and Ryze

Is AP Yi viable in the right hands? Maybe. Is AP Yi better than AD Yi? Hell naw.

Same story. Build a little MR, interrupt Meditates, shrug off damage, and out push him... I think the Yi ended up 0-13 in the game I played.

Ad yi is a bit like kat he can snowball like crazy but both of them get shut down hard with cc to the point of being useless. Ap yi doesnt really have the same weakness as he can stay safely out of range and just alpha when he likes. The major problem with ap is that if the other team buys mr he will tickle them with alpha strike. If i do play yi ever in dom its as ap yi bot, ad yi is very unreliable and he's outdone by pretty much every ad in the game these days especially fiora who seems to pretty much fill the same niche.
